What is the history of the Datsun 240Z series:
Sales of the Nissan Z car started in October 1969 (for the 1970 model year), with separate versions for the Japanese and US markets. The Japanese Fairlady Z featured a 2.0L SOHC L20A inline-6 producing 130 hp (97 kW), while the US 240Z featured a 2.4L L24 inline-6 with twin Hitachi SU type carburetors that produced 151 hp (113 kW) . A third Z, the Z432 PS30 shared a performance version of the DOHC 2.0 L S20 engine with the Nissan Skyline.
In Japan, the Z was still known as the Fairlady to keep the car in line with the previous generation Datsun Sports roadster. JDM versions had the Fairlady Z badge on the lower fenders with the 432 badge above (the 432 designation was 4 valves, 3 carburetors, and 2 camshafts). However, Yutaka Katayama ensured the American version had all Nissan, Fairlady Z, and 432 badging replaced with "Datsun" and prevented all dealer shipments until they were replaced.
The 240Z was released in America on October 22, 1969. Combining good looks, and powerful performance, it sold over 45,000 units through the '71 model year and over 50,000 and 40,000 in 1972 and 1973, respectively.
What makes our 1974 Datsun 240X special?
Believed to be 1 of 7 Right Hand Drive cars built in this year - makes for a very rare car.
The Datsun 240Z has just been released from its slumbers that started in 1984 when the car was put away due to a growing family and the reluctance to part with it.
With mostly Left Hand Drive cars coming to the market, this car is very rare indeed, especially with this mileage and the amount of previous owners it has had.
1 owner plus demonstrator, just 50,000 miles.
The interior is in fantastic condition with everything standard, mostly irreplaceable.
We don't expect this car to be for sale very long.
